It was not exactly a new way for Ubaldo Jimenez to lose, but it was a variation from his norm.
Jimenez gave up four runs in the first inning Tuesday night to kick start the Los Angeles Angels toward a 9-6 win over the Indians at Angels Stadium.
And just in case four runs wasn't enough to ensure the loss, Jimenez got punked for four more in the fourth inning.
"We put up a fight in the second half of the game, but we were in a very deep hole in the first half," Indians manager Manny Acta said. "Ubaldo didn't have very good stuff tonight; he threw too many fat pitches over the middle of the plate in the first inning.
"He didn't have good command of the fastball on the inside of the plate, and they took advantage of it."
